Arts & Entertainment

Collaboration | Inspiration | Community Support

The Arts & Entertainment are highly valued in Newburyport and amongst the top rated Things to Do in Newburyport. There is strong encouragement and praise for our young aspiring individuals and respect for the many professional local artists and entertainers. Newburyport is a community that proudly supports our vibrant local performing arts scene with strong attendance at local performances, exhibits and concerts.

Annual arts and entertainment fundraisers are well attended and accomplishments are recognized and celebrated throughout the community. The Newburyport Arts Collective was developed to encourage cross collaboration amongst our many arts organizations and has helped to establish Newburyport as a cultural center and destination city to visit and experience a broad selection of arts and entertainment. Newburyport is fortunate to have a strong group of volunteers on the Local Cultural Council who help to advocate and administer funding for the many community-based projects.
